Self Portrait

I found a photography challenge online that encouraged creatives to go out and complete one photography prompt every day for 100 days. The first prompt was a Self Portrait. I’ve always struggled with self portraits.

Sunday

I was walking around my grandmother’s retirement complex on a Sunday afternoon when I saw this man working on a yellow 1973 Mercedes Benz. He had classical music blasting from the car stereo as he worked.

Lou

I was babysitting for the weekend and found myself extremely happy at the idea of finally having a subject to photograph. He’s a pretty fast dog, that doesn’t seem to answer to his name so it was hard to get shots of his face, but I managed to get a few good ones.

Revisiting Jurassic Park

 

There are a multitude of reasons why I enjoy this movie so much. To keep it short, Jurassic Park encompasses so much of what I love so dearly about the art of film. From the story, to the practical and digital effects, to the sound designs and that unforgettable score. This movie carries everything I love about cinema. And now, here we are in 2018 with the fifth installment of Jurassic Park approaching theaters quickly. While most JP fans will admit that there will never be a film or sequel that can match the thrill and beauty that the original Jurassic Park brought, I am one of the very few fans that actually enjoyed the films that followed. While I do have my issues with each of them, I still genuinely enjoy them.

I rewatched a 1 hour documentary special on YouTube covering the making of Jurassic Park. If you haven’t watched it, you should definitely give it a watch. It gives you behind the scenes details on how the idea for the film came about to how the film was made. I will say that one of the coolest things about the Jurassic Park franchise is the filmmakers ability to deliver “real” dinosaurs. And by “real” I mean very realistic looking animatronics. They could have skated by with something that was so much more simpler or cheaper looking, but they gave their audience something filled with so much quality and imagination.

 

This behind the scenes doc is a great watch if you are interested in learning how they made this film come to life.

 

Jurassic World, I’m ready.
